What makes a Great Preacher:
Rev. Gardner C. Taylor passed onto heaven on Resurrection Sunday…….
When he was asked during an interview about what makes a great preacher, Taylor responded, “In the Book of Ruth, Naomi says, ‘I went out full, and I’ve come back empty.”’
For Taylor, “That was the story of life. It’s also the story of preaching; we must keep ourselves full so we can empty ourselves in the pulpit.”
In 2011, Taylor described what principles contribute to someone being a great preacher.
“I think the secret of preaching is a deep religious conviction, a knowledge of the Bible and the attempt to express it as well as one might,’’ he said. “I think that is the difference between the ordinary and the extraordinary.’’

The Book of Jeremiah is not just an ancient text; it’s a resonant call that echoes through ages, warning of judgment and offering a path to hope and redemption. This article looks at the heart of Jeremiah’s warnings to Judah, its historical context, and its applicability to the contemporary believer.

The prophet Jeremiah, living during the waning years of the Kingdom of Judah, was tasked with delivering a message fraught with warning and lamentation. The core of his message was straightforward yet profound: Judah’s persistent idolatry, social injustice, and abandonment of their covenant with God would lead to inevitable destruction and exile at the hands of Babylonian forces. More Here

The downfall of America…Just 4% of Americans have a Biblical Worldview. Only 37% of Pastors in America have a Biblical Worldview! TRAGIC! America has become POLITICLAL! Politics is the playground of Satan!

Focus on the Family: Do you have a biblical worldview? Answer the following questions, based on claims found in the Bible and which George Barna used in his survey:

  • Do absolute moral truths exist?
  • Is absolute truth defined by the Bible?
  • Did Jesus Christ live a sinless life?
  • Is God the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe, and does He still rule it today?
  • Is salvation a gift from God that cannot be earned?
  • Is Satan real?
  • Does a Christian have a responsibility to share his or her faith in Christ with other people?
  • Is the Bible accurate in all of its teachings?

Did you answer yes to these? Only 9 percent of “born- again” believers did. But what’s more important than your yes to these questions is whether your life shows it. Granted, we are all sinners and fall short, but most of our gut reactions will reflect what we deep-down, honest-to-goodness believe to be real and true.
